This series of videos about Planned Parenthood is so disturbing. I believe in the sanctity of life. My son is 26 now. When I saw him during the first ultra-sound, 27 years ago, this issue became real for me. God’s goal for us is to respect life and prohibits us from murder.
Body parts are not needed for research.
“Planned Parenthood’s consent form never mentions organ donation. It is woefully inadequate in providing appropriate context and understanding to patients so they can provide genuinely informed consent. The form does not ensure a clear understanding of what will happen to the baby in case of donation, nor does it indicate that the practitioner will use an ultrasound to alter how he or she destroys the baby. Fetal tissue and blood does not match Nucatola’s description of what body parts Planned Parenthood clinics exchange for money. She clearly describes “hearts,” “lungs,” and heads (using a medical term for this last one).
“As the video and transcript show, Nucatola discusses using an ultrasound to change how she would crush and remove the baby in order to preserve organs an unnamed entity had requested. Second, it is unclear at best if Planned Parenthood is profiting off the organs Nucatola and the second whistleblower interviewee, Medical Directors Council President Mary Gatter, agree Planned Parenthood is exchanging for money. To prove Planned Parenthood isn’t profiting would require an extensive audit of their books, so again it’s unclear how Reason can know for sure. Further, the folks discussing this with Nucatola suggest ways their business can defray administrative costs by coming on site and self-shipping, over and above paying for children’s organs. It’s certainly worth investigating what money changed hands here.
